Which Countries are Most Impacted by FTX's Collapse?

South Korea, Singapore and Japan are the countries most impacted by FTX's collapse, with a combined 15.7% traffic share to FTX.com. Amongst all countries worldwide, South Korea saw the highest traffic share of 6.1%, representing 297,229 unique users on average visiting FTX.com monthly, across desktop and mobile web. The FTX fallout has propelled South Korea’s government officials to draw up the Digital Asset Basic Act, a comprehensive regulatory framework that is expected to be finalized next year. 

Singapore, recognised as Asia’s cryptocurrency hub, is the second most impacted country, making up 5% of the traffic to FTX.com globally. In actual figures, this represents 241,675 monthly average unique users. The shuttering of Binance in December 2021 saw Binance users in Singapore switching to FTX, and may explain why Singapore ranks high on the list of countries impacted by FTX’s demise. In recent news, Singaporean state holding company, Temasek wrote down their $275 million investment in FTX.

Following closely and placing third is Japan, with 4.6% of traffic share – representing 223,513 unique users on average visiting FTX.com monthly. Japanese investment giant, SoftBank, invested $100 million in FTX earlier this year alongside other backers like Lightspeed Venture Partners, Tiger Global and Insight Partners. Their announcement came after venture capital firm, Sequoia tweeted a memo to their limited partners, announcing FTX’s liquidity issues and marking their investment down to $0.
